Read later option coming to Google Chrome

Google Chrome is undoubtedly one of the most secure and efficient web browsers in the world. With billions of users using Chrome to browse the web, It is expected from Google that they keep adding new features now and then. Three years later, the company added a “Read Later” option to Google Chrome on iOS, and now the feature will finally be launched on the desktop platform. As per “Chromium Gerrit“, the feature on Google Chrome will soon be available on ChromeOS, macOS, Windows, and Linux.

Believed to have been first spotted by Techdows, the feature is already available behind a flag in Chrome 86 Canary. It was also spotted that the feature was already existing in Android with a different Avatar. To use it, tap on the triple dot menu on the top right and select the Download option from the pullout menu. 

It will add the web page to the save list. Although it is not a one-click solution but still efficient. As per the update, the new feature will add a new button to the browser, which will be marked as read later. The same feature will also be listed on the menu for accessing the tabs saved for later. Although there is a lot of speculation about how the feature will work, there is no information on when it will be launched as the product is still under development.

The last few weeks have been very exciting for Chrome as it received native 64-bit support earlier this month, and added a download scheduler on Android last week. Many more new features are on the way and will soon be announced by Google.
